French actor Louis Jourdan, known for his role in the award-winning 1958 musical Gigi, died at his home in Los Angeles on Saturday, according to his biographer Olivier Minne. He was 93. Jourdan, who was born in Marseilles, was one of Hollywood's leading men during the late 1940s and throughout the 1950s, playing roles on the silver screen in movies such as The Count of Monte Cristo, Octopussy, Swamp Thing and The Return of Swamp Thing.
